The Eastern coast of Spain, bordering the Mediterranean Sea, was once the location of numerous narrow gauge lines. These comprised of a diverse selection of systems, ranging from a small 60cm.gauge industrial line, rural branch lines of both 75cm and metre gauge and an extensive purely industrial metre gauge route. The majority of the lines featured in this album were sadly destined for closure by the end of the 1960s. Happily some routes have survived, the majority of which are now incorporated into urban light rail tramway networks. This publication illustrates the varied and extensive narrow gauge operations that were once so much part of the everyday scene in this area, which has become a familiar destination for the tourist and holiday industry during the recent past.
